to is the guy sort of out of focus on the left-hand side of the photo that is john dingell, congressman john dingell of dearborn, michigan. congressman dingle is 86 years old. he is in his 30th term in congress. a few months into this term for him in june of this year, he will become the longest serving member of congress in american history. nobody since the dawn of the republic will have served as much time in congress as john dingell as of this june. john dingell is a democrat. he has been his entire career as far as i know. he is also a staunch proponent of gun rights. he is a former board member of the national rifle association. now what is going on in this photo from the vice president's office today is that john dingell is speaking to this whole group of cabinet officials and the vice president himself and his fellow house democrats, and he is speaking to them as one of the 12 vice-chairman of the democrats gun violence prevention task force in the house. this group was set up by nancy pelosi last month to be the voice of congressional democrats on reform. and it tells you something
. although the u.s. senate acted last month on sandy relief, it has taken john boehner's republican-controlled house 78 days since the storm to pass this bill responding to the storm. in the end, on the republican side, it ended up being a grudging vote for sandy relief. republicans voted against sandy relief by a 3-1 margin. the bill was only able to pass because a minority of republicans joined with democrats to get it done in the house. even though the senate already passed its version of hurricane sandy relief last year, last month, the senate bill has to be redone because it took the house so long to get their side of it done. the senate is expected to get their side done again shortly. and then the president says he will sign the measure into law. >>> and tonight, in further breaking news, as slow as house republicans were to act in response to hurricane sandy, tonight's other major news is about how fast new york state was able to move to respond to a different kind of disaster. tonight one month and one day after the mass shooting at sandy hook elementary school in newtown,

republicans elected a white house screening of "lincoln" last month. had mitch mcconnell, john boehner, lamar alexander attended, they were all invited, they would have joined not only nancy pelosi, harry reid but steven spielberg, tommy lee jones. as tip o'neill famously said about his political foe, ronald reagan, love the sinner. hate the sin. when president reagan would invite the speaker, tip o'neill over to the white house for drinks and raise a glass to one another. there's no shortage of parties planned around inauguration 2013. here is hoping it spills over to the next four years and both sides of the aisle make a move to be more social and more civil. and, hence, more productive. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us.

successful that even john boehner will consider becoming a democrat. after all, we have a lot in common. he is a person of color. although not a color that appears in the natural world. leaders of the republican party, they call the passage of this bill armageddon. end of freedom as we know it. so after i sign the bill, i looked around to see if there were any asteroids falling or sudden cracks opening up in the earth. turned out it was a nice day. they said we needed to triple the border patrol. well, now they're going to say we need to quadruple the border patrol or they'll want a higher fence. maybe they will need a moat. maybe they want alligators in the moat. lots of ups, lots of downs, except for my approval ratings which have just gone down. but that's politics. it doesn't bother me. besides, i happen to know that my approval ratings are still very high in the country of my birth. he seems all-american, but if you heard his real middle name, tim hosni pawlenty, what a shame. governor romney has said that he hoped a similar version of this plan from last year would be introduced as a
. but we know that john boehner often has had trouble with his various plans. plan b most notoriously, getting them approved, accepted and passed by his own house republicans. and cantore made a very declarative statement today. there already immediately were grumblings that some house republicans will go along with this i'm not sure that democrats will, too. it remains to be seen whether, indeed, john boehner and cantore can get passed what they want to do. then again this is just another three-month extension. now the good news for the vix watchers out there is that this puts it past, you know, the coming showdowns on sequestration involving the budget which will all kind of happen in march. so this is one cliff that may not happen as two other cliffs are under way. three months from now, depending what happens with those cliffs and what happens with the economy, the house republicans, the tea partiers and the let's blow it to hell members of the republican caucus may not want to go along with this for another extension. the president has clearly won, steered them down, as he said h
spending, the debate is the perfect time for it. house speaker john boehner also ignored the obligation to pay the billings and complained about spending. the american people do not support raising the debt ceiling without reducing government ceiling at the same time. they speak so confident, don't they? it is almost as if they forget about the spending cuts the president already gave them over a year ago. let's try to help them figure it out a little bit with visual and audio assistance. >> i signed into law $1.4 trillion in spending cuts. two week ago, i signed a bill into law regarding revenue, by making sure the wealthiest americans begin to pay their fair share. when you add the money and the interest payments on the debt, that adds up to about $2.5 trillion in deficit reduction over the past two years, not counting the $400 billion saved from winding down the wars in iraq and afghanistan. so we have made progress. >> didn't president clinton say it was all about math? republicans can posture on the debt ceiling all they want. they know the truth. listen to john boehner two years a

. this gimmick is the only thing republicans have up their sleeves right now. john boehner told everyone two years ago the country would not default on its debt. >> do you agree with administration officials and other economists that defaulting on the full faith and credit of the united states would be a financial disaster? >> that would be a financial disaster, not only for our country, but for the worldwide economy. >> and president obama reminded congress the economic damage done by playing games with the debt limit. >> the last time republicans in congress even flirted with this idea, our aaa credit rating was downgraded for the first time in our history. our businesses created the fewest jobs of any month in nearly the past three years and, ironically, the whole fiasco actually added to the deficit. >> republicans basically had no choice but to retreat from their hard line position, negotiating with the american people. if the country defaulted, they would be responsible for a global economic collapse. the new plan for a three-month increase guarantees another debate in the next few mon

spending cuts are proposing more spending. that's a separate issue. john, let me ask you about this that i referenced in texas. they are now saying there's a law being considered, a bill in texas, where if you're already allowed to carry concealed hand gun, you would now be allowed to carry that concealed hand gun on a college or university campus. is that bill going to change because of what happened today or is it just going to go full ahead? >> let's hope so. if there's some common sense and decency on the part of the legislators to respond to changing facts on the ground. look, this shooting is a case study for why more guns on college campuses are a terrible idea. i mean, it doesn't pass the common sense test. anyone who has been to college, it's hard to imagine a worst case scenario than a bunch of college students with more guns. every once in awhile this ideological driven idiocy is not driven by reality. four school shootings since newtown? at what point will we get a reality check and realize the worst thing we can do is have more guns on college campuses? today is a reality chec

john thune said it lacked the necessary outreach to get things done. and there was a basic disagreement over how ambitious the speech was. the national review online editors wrote, "the rhetoric is still soaring and the country still stagnating." david ignatius rote, the only voice that really soared at midday was beyonce's. mike, are some of those fair? >> david ignatius certainly is there, this is unquestionably the most ideologically ambitious speech since president reagan's first inaugural address 3 # years a 32 years ago. this is what he would do if he didn't have congress. i think coming up february 12th, when the president addresses congress, state of the union message, there i think we may see a more practical vision. for instance, taking center stage here was climate change. >> we have the sound bite from this. i mean, this surprised a lot of people. i follow this issue very closely. it wasn't even once brought up at any of the debates leading up -- not by a moderator or by the candidates, and then he chooses yesterday to bring it up. let's listen to the sound first and then we
. john boehner has repeatedly said so. but the president -- but the president is trying to force the appearance of a confrontation in order to magnify the political impact of a republican climb-down when it eventually happens, as it will. >> so daniel, let me ask you, ben bernanke came out today and weighed in on this whole thing in a way that might shock people because he said, you know what, to hell with the debt ceiling, although he said it in ben bernanke style. let me let him say it. >> i think it would be a good thing if we didn't have it. i don't think that's going to happen. >> so would it be better if we didn't have a debt ceiling at all? >> yeah, absolutely it would. this is a silly thing which ought to happen automatically because our debt is going to grow along with our economy from year to year. especially it's going to grow in times when we need to spend a little more to juice our economy. but you know, bernanke has very little credibility with the republican party because republican leadership last year actually sent letters to him saying stop with your quantitativ
court said it was unconstitutional. >> you did? >> so you agree with john roberts? >> yes. >> you did. i'm surprised. because in that case -- so through the use of the commerce clause we can now mandate that people buy things? >> no, he didn't say you could use the commerce clause. he said you could not use the commerce clause. >> right. >> what he said was it was a tax. >> must have been a mix-up in the prenotes of the preinterview. but let's see a shot in freeze frame. this is the face of a truly confused man. the elevator doesn't go all the way to the top here, folks. if only sean hannity would listen to his boss, he might not be so confused.
